Survey on COVID-19 impact on Canadians with disabilities

June 29, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the lives and habits of all Canadians, yet data on the impacts to people living with long-term conditions or disabilities is limited.

Statistics Canada has therefore launched a survey on the impacts of COVID-19 on Canadians living with long-term conditions and disabilities. All Canadians who have a long-term condition or disability, including those conditions or disabilities that may be undiagnosed or non-visible, are invited to participate today in the Statistics Canada’s survey. Caregivers and children of someone who cannot participate directly themselves may also respond on behalf of that person. You have until July 6, 2020, to do so.

This survey seeks information about employment, household expenses, support networks, and access to health and therapeutic services. Results will be used by government organizations such as the Public Health Agency of Canada, Employment and Social Development Canada, and other types of organizations, to evaluate the delivery of health and social services and economic support, and to ensure best practices are adopted when reopening workplaces and public spaces.

For general enquiries and technical assistance, please contact Statistics Canada from Monday to Friday (except holidays), from 8 am to 7 pm (Eastern time) at 1-877-949-9492 (TTY: 1-800-363-7629) or by email.

For more information about accessibility, visit ECCC’s Accessibility intranet page (available on the VPN network only).

The more people participate, the better the data.

Thank you!
